Which junior hockey teams have developed the most NHL talent?

I know I have heard of quite a few players coming from the Peterborough Petes, has any other team developed better players than them? What are some other teams that have developed a lot of NHL players?

    I am not sure about the most players, but the most hall of famers have come from the St Micheals Junior A's. From the 30-60's it put out more NHL players than any other school.

    It is not Junior A Tier 1 team anymore so some teams may have caught up.

    Just to clear the air:

    With Dick Duff’s inclusion in 2006, there are now fourteen members of the Majors family that have become members of the hallowed Hockey Hall of Fame: Bobby Bauer, Father David Bauer, Turk Broda, Gerry Cheevers, Murray Costello, Duff, Tim Horton, Red Kelly, Dave Keon, Ted Lindsay, Frank Mahovlich, Reg Noble, Joe Primeau and Frank Rankin.

    This ranks them as #1 for HOF'ers

  • Montreal Junior Canadiens have sent more players to the NHL than any other team (and the team in second place is still 80 behind)

  • Montreal Jr Canadiens haven't been around for some time now have they?? I'd say the Peterborough (sp) Pete's and the Ottawa 67's are right up there. Oshawa Generals have also sent more than a few.

    Montreal Juniors. I played for the mini caps with Jeff Halpern and every year we'd go up to Montreal and get our asses handed to us and feel great about it as long as we had scored at least once.

  • 1 decade ago

    Kamloops Blazers have done a bunch too.

    Lots of guys come out of the WHL.

  • 1 decade ago

    i am not sure if i am totally correct... guess i could look it up... but i think the WHL has put more in the NHL than the OHL or the QMJHL.
